The Twitter application now available on macOS Catalina thanks to Catalyst

Today we have received a long-awaited new version of Twitter for macOS Catalina. For many years the Twitter application was on the Mac, but the social network stopped updating the version for macOS, with the new functions that it was incorporating. Failing that, Twitter users if we want to access Twitter, we have to access from the web.

But thanks to Catalyst project, we have one new version of Twitter for macOS. Of course, it is only available for macOS Catalina. The reason we now have Catalyst is the ease of porting the app from iOS to macOS.

So this version should look a lot like the version we have in the iPad. Once downloaded and tested the first functions, we can say that it is almost identical except for a few adjustments. These differences focus on the steps to switch twitter accounts. Now, except for this slight adaptation, the rest of the functions are very similar. Post-installation experience from the mac appstore, it's a bit confusing. After entering the username and password, tweets do not appear for a few minutes. It is as if they had to be preloaded before enjoying the application.

As for the interface, it is identical to the iPad version. We have the same configuration options, including themes according to the system mode that we have selected. One option that turns out to be a great success is the possibility of compress the information or expand it. When you first open the application you see the typical application icons and tweets. But yes you stretch the right edge of the application to the right, the trends are displayed and later the name of the icons on the left.

And of course it incorporates shortcuts for those who spend hours in front of Twitter for work or leisure. For example, pressing Command + N we create a new tweet. Therefore, this new version of Twitter is a good statement of intent towards the rest of the application developers of this social network to constantly improve their application. And of course, encourage other developers to import their version of iOS to macOS.
